Hi,
This is a common problem with the set. The power supply has 2 or 3 capacitors that are swollen because they can't handle the voltage anymore.Eventually it won't come on at all.If you can use a soldering iron you can repair for several bucks. If you get a TV repair service they may want to replace the entire power supply instead which will cost hundreds. You can verify the problem with a visual inspection of the board. The caps will be rounded or peaked on top unlike the other normal caps which are flat on top.

My COby tv wont turn on.


I unplugged my TV for 5 minutes after 5 minutes I pressed the Power button on the side of the TV not the power button on remote for a full minute. Plugged the TV back in, pressed the power button and it turned on. Doing this essentially does a reset.

I have a flashing menu screen and cant turn it off


Try to do a power reset first by having the TV unplugged from the power outlet for one minute, then do factory reset. Do the factory reset 3 times for a full reset to occur. Once the initial setup screen appears, go on and press the up arrow on the remote then power on the TV. If the TV still does the same thing, the TV would require service.

Remote stuck--can't change channel or turn off TV


Pull out the power plug of your TV and don't use it for few minutes. Remove batteries from your remote and keep it without batteries for few minutes. After about 15 minutes your TV and remove both will work fine.

Power won't come on- constant clicking loop instead


My T.V. did the same thing and it was due to bad capacitors on the power supply board. the tops of the capacitors were bulged, once replaced it worked fine. It involves sodering in new capacitors total cost $30. that includes buying the sodering tool. Keep looking around on line someone had pictures step by step how to do it.

Sony Plasma TV


I had this same exact issue yesterday. I own the same TV model and here is what SONY had me do to get the picture back. Ultimately the picture comes back, but it will be very dim and needs repair. Most likely a power supply issue. Try these steps:

-Press power off or leave with standby light on for 5 minutes (wait the full 5 minutes)
-Unplug TV / Press top buttons 5 times each to remove static from system boards (yes, each button 5 times each)
-Wait one full minute and plug TV in and press power on

Sony FWD50PX2/S 50 in. Plasma Television power problem


It does sound like a power supply problem but that can be misleading because a problem somewhere else in the TV can be "holding down" the power supply. This can usually be determined by using some isolation techniques.
